Class #3221T – Get Your Business Listed on the First Page of Google: Using Local Search  

How does a small business get onto Google (local), Bing,and Yahoo maps? If you have been approached by an Internet marketing company that has some version of ‘local’ in their name and promises to get you listed on the first page of Google for a monthly fee, then you need to come to this class before you sign on the dotted line. Learn tactics that search engine optimization companies charge upwards of $2,000 for to get you into “local search.” In most cases it takes a little knowledge, some elbow grease, and you can do the same thing yourself at little to no cost. After this class, you will know how to get your business on Google, Bing and Yahoo maps, listed on local directories, find places you never thought of to be listed, and have a road map of action items-even if your budget is $0.
